For the New York Foodie

Russ & Daughters New York Brunch: $125


New York may be the greatest city on earth for so many reasons, and one of them is definitely bagels. This holiday, make your foodie’s East Coast dreams come true: send them a Russ & Daughters New York Brunch, complete with smoked salmon, hand-rolled bagels, cream cheese, and chocolate babka. All the NY flavor, free of subway delays, and slow-walking tourists.


For the Luxe Foodie

Petrossian Banquet à la Russe Sampler : $395


Any time you have caviar, it qualifies as one of the “finer things,” and under the definition of the “finer things” in life, we’re pretty sure there’s a photo of the Petrossian Banquet gift basket. Treats include 250g of their famous salmon roe, a jar of caviar tarama, smoked salmon, crème fraiche, blinis, and unique extras like freshly baked black bread and vodka chocolate pearls. Add a tin of their Transmontanus Caviar to push it over the top.


For Cheese Lovers

Murray’s Cheese of the Month: from $75


This is the subscription box for cheese lovers (so everyone). Once a month, they’ll receive three cheeses, hand selected by Murray’s skilled cheese mongers, sourced from all over the world. It’s a great way to expand your foodie’s horizons, without having to hop on an airplane.  


For the Cooking Foodie

Sahadi’s Middle Eastern Gift Basket: $95


The Lebanese cuisine is one of the best in the world, but it isn’t mainstream yet. This basket is great for foodies who love to cook.  For those unfamiliar with Middle Eastern food, it even includes a cookbook. The basket has staples like couscous, tahina, and Saifan olive oil (a Lebanese kitchen essential), as well as some less common ingredients, like pomegranate molasses and dried apricot paste.


For the Traveler Foodie

MM Spanish Artisan Food Gift Boxes: $28


The gourmet culinary center, Mimo, in San Sebastian, is the mecca for epicureans and now has an artisan gift box for lovers of Spanish food. Not only are the boxes beautifully packaged, but they also include hard-to-come-by Spanish specialties, such as Catalan Romesco dip, wood-fired piquillo peppers, and olives. You can cover all your bases with three different boxes to choose from: “All the Salsa,” “Snacks & Picoteo,” and “Best of Spain.” This is the perfect gift for jet setters, who post more pics of food than they do of ocean views.
